Additional reporting by Andrea Saadan
1/10 Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra Fine Mist
This is high on our list because of how incredibly hydrating your skin will feel after a couple of spritzes. And it smells just like what you would expect: the juicy watermelon fruit. It's made of watermelon extract and seed oil as well as hyaluronic acid, botanically-derived AHAs, and apple cider vinegar. These are all aimed at improving hydration and to balance oil production. The K-Beauty brand's watermelon range is so popular that its Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask sold out in just five hours back in 2017.
2/10 Dr Roebuck’s Bondi Hydrating Mist
Made in Australia, this clean beauty face mist is packed with vitamin C, Kakadu plum, cucumber extracts, glycerin, and niacinamide - ticking off all the boxes of high quality ingredients. This coconut-scented mist also reduces the appearance of blemishes and sun damage while also improves skin texture and restores its healthy glow.
3/10 Caudalie Beauty Elixir
A cult favourite with celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is infused with extracts of grape, rosemary, orange blossom, rose, myrrh and organic balm mint that instantly soothe and relax the skin. It doubles as a toner and a face serum, and a spritz of this is a quick way to refresh, tone and prep skin for make-up.
4/10 Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist
We're fans of Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour skincare range, so it's only right that we would also be fans of its Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist. It's refreshing and leaves the skin feeling soft and looking healthy. It's multi-purpose and can be used in any situation—from a quick mist on board a flight to setting your makeup.

It's also alcohol- and sulphate-free so it won't be too drying for the skin. To elevate the experience, store the bottle in the fridge for an invigorating mist.
